I was born in Amman, Jordan and have spent half of my life in the Middle East and the other half in Europe. Wherever I am, I'm inspired by the weather, the climate and the landscapes around me.
During my time working as a research scientist in medicinal chemistry in Cambridge, UK, I began to experiment with photography as a creative outlet, particularly with 35mm film. Inspired by the film photography community online, I began to share my work on Flickr and Instagram around 2015.
I enjoy transforming a scene such that it becomes what the mind sees rather than what the camera sees. I take a camera with me wherever I go and am driven to capture places both familiar and new. My love of colour and of timeless landscapes hugely influences my photos - the result is a body of work that is ethereal, playful and melancholic.
My photos have been licensed by companies like Sony, Apple, Instagram and Lexus.
The visual arts have enriched my life in countless ways - I also love drawing and painting using both traditional and digital media.
